The Pokémon mini is a handheld games console manufactured by Nintendo, based on the Pokémon media franchise. It was produced in a variety of colours, each named after Pokémon; Wooper blue, Chikorita green and Schmoochum purple. It is the smallest games system with interchangeable cartridges ever produced by Nintendo. 

It has a real-time clock, an infrared port for multiplayer gaming and a reed switch to detect shakes, as well as a motor for force feedback. 

Firstly, it was released in North America during November 2001, and then in Japan December 2001. It was released in Europe in March 2002.

Hackers and hobbyist programmers reverse engineered the Pokémon mini to allow official games to be played on other platforms and to allow the creation of homebrew games.
